to the media. >>> syria's ruthless regime may have little time left. president assad is losing his country's bloody civil war and now the foreign ministry denies that statement this morning. the rebels are outside the capital and gaining ground, but many groups with competing interests among the ranks and assad's fall would not mean an end to the fighting. >> don't really have a good sense. to the extent that external organizations are in there in some extremist form, the worry is the retribution afterwards and access to chemical weapons. >> this week, the u.s., europe and allies recognized the opposition, which could speed up international aid. but some factions of the rebels are known to have ties to al qaeda. that is the lingering question, you knock out the leader, but what is left, building a new country sometimes is the more difficult part compared to getting rid of the dictator. look at egypt and the mess they're going through. >> but the state department is encouraging russia to withdraw their support and join with the u.s. in implementing a political transition. that has not happe

but it seriously expands the united states role along syria's borders. we will be right back. [ music ] you're about to watch an ad message created by a current tv matter. i've been a nurse since 1979. i love being a nurse. a few years ago a friend i went to grade school with showed me a book she had kept from third grade. i had written that i wanted to be a nurse. after being a nurse for about twenty years i decided that i need to further my education. my masters degree was done completely online and that gave me the freedom and ability to do my education while i raised my kids and worked full time. raising my kids as a single mom and having them see me get my education online and work full-time has given them the opportunity to see that they can do anything that they want to. i'm currently the hospital administrator for two public hospitals. we serve patients who might not otherwise get care. i teach an online nursing program. i feel that i'm giving back something to the nurses that are attempting to get their bachelors degree like i did. doing online education is something that i suggest
